Leave your legacy

There will come a time in all our lives when we consider how we want to leave our legacy.  Your life’s accomplishments are important to celebrate and honor. A charitable gift to Alpha Phi Delta Foundation is such a way to cement your legacy.  Charitable gifts, including long-range estate and financial planning, can be a great way for you to provide support for Alpha Phi Delta. It is possible to “Leave a Legacy” while potentially minimizing taxes and settlement costs and conserving more of your estate for loved ones. 

What are the Easiest Ways to Leave my Legacy

A bequest is a gift made through a will or living trust. Bequests may be stated as a percentage of your estate, as the residual of your estate or a specific dollar amount.  

Here is some suggested language as a starting point for your attorney: 


“I hereby bequeath $______   to Alpha Phi Delta Foundation, Inc., PO Box 23188, Pittsburgh, PA, to be used for purposes as deemed appropriate by the Foundation’s board of directors.”


“I hereby bequeath $______ to Alpha Phi Delta Foundation, Inc., PO Box 23188, Pittsburgh, PA, to be used in the following manner: (please describe the specific use or uses for your bequest), in accordance with the Foundation’s overall objectives.”


“Provided that my final estate valuation is greater than $______, I hereby bequeath $______ to Alpha Phi Delta Foundation, Inc., PO Box 23188, Pittsburgh, PA to be used for purposes as deemed appropriate by the Foundation’s board of directors.”

The First Things to Consider

Who do I contact?

Please contact Brother John Hadgkiss (Beta Rho ’66) at if you’d like to step through your options. Or simply inform John of the bequest once it’s made.  All we need is your written verification.  If you have already included Alpha Phi Delta Foundation in your estate plan, please let us know so that we can award you the Omega Society pin.

Why is it important to consider an estate plan?

An estate plan gift is a powerful tool that can provide a way for you to help secure your own financial future and the financial future of Alpha Phi Delta. It can help you make larger gifts than you ever dreamed possible. Some estate plan gifts can provide you with income for life.
